The typical lifetime of an industrial process plant is between 30 and 50 years. Technologies to enhance the operation and optimization of process plants can both guide the development of new state-of-the-art process plants and, perhaps more pertinently, can ensure that the large installed base of existing plants operates efficiently. The PRONTO Consortium partners are strongly convinced that for E ...

The first objective of the project is plant-wide application of asset management. It lifts the focus from single-component diagnostics to a plant-wide view of both asset performance and asset condition. Secondly, because di-agnostics need to result in actions, diagnostic information (asset information) is used to generate control actions. Control refers to all levels of the automation pyramid, i.e ...
